Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - Friday

This is a lovely, easy going start. We meet at Gerrards Cross Station early afternoon, check in, then we are off to Chalfont. The very best electrified branch line awaits – to Chesham and back amid Chiltern countryside! Our afternoon continues to Beckonscot – a truly remarkable place and the world’s oldest model village.

Meals: Dinner
Day 2 - Saturday

Well, well, well (that’s 3 more holes in the ground! – as they say!), but gawd blimey, we are going to be bowled over unless we keep a good eye in! So, - to London we go for the London Eye, Post Office Tunnels and, don’t you know (!), Lords Cricket Ground. You’ll want to go home tomorrow ‘cos this day cannot be bettered.

Meals: Breakfast,Dinner
Day 3 - Sunday

Oh but it can! – to an Ongar world for an Epping experience! Heritage abounds with vintage buses, diesels and “Ongar vapeur” all amid the splendour of Epping Forest. We then make the journey to the Docklands driverless light railway to Royal Victoria Dock and “fly” with Emirates over the Thames by cable car to the O2 (dome). An epic day concludes cruising the Thames via Tower Bridge and all the sights to Waterloo and rail back to Gerrards Cross. Can this be bettered?

Meals: Breakfast,Dinner
Day 4 - Monday

Only joking! – of course it can, as we set off to the home of motor racing and aviation (don’t miss a “flight” On Concorde!) – Brooklands, of course, and now the home of the best bus/transport museum in the whole of Chertsey! Ever had a Great Cockrow experience?! Then join us for one at the most incredible small gauge railway in the world. Enough to make your eyes water!

Meals: Breakfast,Dinner
Day 5 - Tuesday

A lovely last morning aboard our privately chartered Salters Steamer (that doesn’t!) to Windsor. On board will be a buffet to enjoy during the best Thames cruise. Homeward bound journeys commence from Gerrards Cross early afternoon.
